Jeeves Intervenes
By Margaret Raether
Directed by Michael Goldberg
To open our final season, First Folio brings back our very first adventure of Bertie and Jeeves from 2008. The pleasure-seeking and marriage-averse Bertie is desperately trying to avoid his ferocious Aunt Agatha or "she who chews broken bottles; she who kills rats with her teeth." In tow with Bertie's aunt is Gertrude Winkleswoth-Bode, a strong-minded single woman with a penchant for Nietzsche. However, when Bertie's impecunious pal, Eustace Bassington-Bassington becomes smitten with Gertie, Jeeves sees a pathway to avoid disaster…providing they can also avoid Eustace’s irascible Scottish uncle, Sir Rupert Watlington-Pipps. Filled with all the sly word play and manic antics you’ve come to expect, this is the pitch-perfect Jeeves story we all need.

In 1950’s Ireland, family means everything, so when Eveline Donnelly abandons her dream of a university education to care for her widowed father, it seems only right and natural to her.

Twelfth Night
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Hayley Rice
This production will close the 26 year history of First Folio, bringing us back to our origins in the works of the Bard.
After being shipwrecked on the shores of Ilyria, Viola re-invents herself in order to survive. When she falls for Duke Orsino, however, Viola must choose between love and loyalty. After navigating the shoals of comedy put in her path by Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the malevolent Malvolio, Viola reaches the port of true happiness in Shakespeare’s tale of romance and self-discovery.
